    An accurate analysis of nanoscale compositional fluctuations in InGaAs/GaAs quantum wires grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition on V-grooved substrates was performed by means of high-spatial-resolution transmission electron microscopy techniques. Small In fluctuations (2%-3% excess indium), spatially localized over approximately 5 nm, were detected and related to changes in the photoluminescence and photoluminescence excitation spectra.
